Amsterdam is known as the place where travelers from all over the world meet in coffee shops and corner cafes to partake in their love of marijuana, knowing full well that they are smoking some of the best buds available. So it stands to reason that the Dutch, The Flying Dutchmen to be exact, really know how to craft a beautiful strain, and if this cross between Blueberry and Skunk #1 is any indication of that logic, let it be known that this bud is a perfectly fruity example.
Blueberry Skunk is an indica-dominant hybrid comprised of 80% indica and 20% sativa with an average THC level of above 20%. For the user, this means a powerful high with super relaxing effects that may leave you yearning for your pillow. The buds of this strain are large and dense with forest green and deep blue hues, giving them the appearance of a jumbo-sized blueberry. The flavors are as you would expect: extremely fruity and skunky with undertones of sugar and spice, with aromas that are similarly strong and true to its name.
The Blueberry Skunk high is one of immense relaxation, beginning slow and heady with waves of tingles and heaviness as it builds throughout the body. The sinking begins almost immediately but is not so strong that it overpowers the giggles or the munchies. This giddy phase is the longest lasting, going on for hours and hours until you finally start to feel the weight of your eyelids. The uplifting euphoria that has ebbed and flowed throughout your high is now in full effect, sending you off to Dreamland with a warm buzz and a tension-free body.
As the aforementioned effects are highly potent, Blueberry Skunk is great for the treatment of chronic pain, muscle spasms, cramps, headaches, and other ailments where a mild, over-the-counter painkiller would typically be your go-to. For cases of chronic stress, depression, and fatigue caused by restless sleep this strain is perfect if taken in slightly larger doses. As this is a strong lady, be sure to know your limits before diving in head first. She has a tendency to sneak up on you if you aren't totally prepared.
The feminized seeds will produce a large crop in the right conditions, so those with even the lightest of green thumbs might find themselves lucky here. With a flowering time of 8 to 11 weeks, this indoor/outdoor plant falls under the moderate grow category and is a nice plant for anyone looking to advance from beginner to intermediate skills. The slightly above average yields and resistance to many critters and molds makes this a nice plant for most gardens.
This is a lovely late evening toke if you are looking to unwind after a long day, or if you are a night owl try it before bed for long lasting and well deserved rest. For cough reduction, try Blueberry Skunk in a water pipe or vaporizer.
